This is a great doco about mushrooms!

As many of you know, I was invited by Vanity Fair and the Ritz-Carlton to do a solo show during the Oscars. A lot of work went into it, and today, if you’re a Passport Member, then you get to see some of the details behind the layout. Enjoy!
Here’s a smattering of some of the photos from the big show! You’ll hear more about them in the Passport Sunday video below.
While I was going through this process, I thought it would be interesting to record a video so you could see some of the work that went into it. Enjoy!
Cliff and I had an amazing trip out to Burning Man a few years ago when we drove in his RV from Dallas. Man, that’s a long drive. I don’t know how he does it every year. I think he’s just more patient than me. Anyway, along the way, we listened to all sorts of cool spiritual people and meditation and stuff like that. That got us in the right mindset for event!
I don’t often go visit museums in cities, because I’m usually too busy taking photos in said cities. However, I did go spend a few hours in the Met in New York to see their collection of Impressionist paintings. There is one wing that has a collection of Renoirs that is breathtaking. I had some music flowing into my ears as I roamed around to take them in. Memory us a tricky thing, but I have a perfect memory of most of my moments there.
Just like the Reddit title says, I’d love to have this guy read me the news every night.
Back when it was easier to use a drone at Burning Man, I got quite a few cool shots. This is one of them that shows “Center Camp” there to the left. That’s the area that people come to for all sorts of activities. There’s yoga, juggling, coffee, art, beat poets… man, you name it. Now, it’s quite a bit harder to get the license to fly a drone there. I applied the last two years but was denied 🙁
Actually, I’m not surprised after traveling around a bit… I occasionally see these sorts of people at various locations.
I recently posted this photo on social media and people really seemed to love it. I really did not expect that reaction! I mean, you never know what’s gonna be a hit and what won’t. You all know me… the reaction does not affect what I choose to shoot or post, but I do enjoy watching the reactions. It was so popular that I am putting in my upcoming book!
I found this one very enjoyable! 🙂
This is one of my very first HDR photos that became quite popular. I recently re-did it for a parallel-universe version. This one has more of a film-look. I’m not saying it’s better or worse, just different. I actually didn’t go back to all the original RAW files but instead did a re-edit of the final rendered photo from before.
I think you’ll get hooked after Episode 1!
I recently re-worked a few of my older photos for an exhibition. There was to be a bit of a “film” feel, so I went back and used various cross-processing techniques for the shots. This is a process where you push the whites into one color space and the blacks into another. Every scene is completely different, so I may start with a preset but then push it into another direction.
As with every Sunday, you get a chance to see me edit today’s photo. Not a member yet? Sign up here! You’ll love it!
Today’s is another quick hit video and you can see how I use some features of Aurora to really make it pop!
I haven’t been to Disney in years and I’m not sure if they still let you use tripods, but I’m sure glad they did while I was there! It was kind of weird carrying it all over the park, especially when I got on rides. The operators would just let me collapse it and put it under my legs. Seems like that might be kind of a hazard but they didn’t seem to mind, so neither did I!
